Primary Potential Beneficiaries of the Foundation
The Jessica Jennifer Cohen Foundation seeks to provide financial assistance to benefit young adults to enable them to perform community service that otherwise would be financially difficult or impracticable for them to do. The community service may be through employment or other association with a non-profit or other suitable community service organization, through the development and execution of an individual’s own program of community service, or through any other suitable community service activity. The Jessica Jennifer Cohen Foundation prefers to help young people whose proposed project is an early major step for him or her in community service.
Other Available Assistance from the Foundation
